Find And Run Robot / One Request
« on: March 30, 2006, 05:39 PM »
I have a few things that i usually use that aren't on my farr's search directories. So, i create alias for them.
The problem with this, is that launched alias don't appear in the launch history. In some way, yes it doesn't make sense, since they're already stored in the alias list, no need to be reapeated in the launch history too.
BUT.. They also don't appear on the list available when we start farr.
I think this would be very usefull for some alias.

So, my request is that if there can be a checkbox in the alias creation dialog, that would make an alias be subjected to appear in the launch list or not, and if yes, with or without the last launch parameters.
If this isn't possible, a checkbox for all alias to appear there or not would surelly be enough!

Living Room / Bombay TV - make your own small clip

EhEh.. This is funny.
You've got a few clips to choose, all in a strange language. Then, you can add them your own custom-made subtitles, and send the created movie to your friends!

Living Room / Make your own home server
« on: March 24, 2006, 05:35 AM »
I read about this on one portuguese magazine, and found the article very interesting.

The idea is you have an old computer at home that is only getting dustier by every day?
Well... You can now give some interesting use to it.
With NasLite+, you can make it be your own ftp/http home server.
You already could do this before, but a 486 with a 200mb disk is not that useful as an ftp server, is it? ;)

That's the advantage about naslite. NasLite doesn't depend on the computer's own bios, which allows you to use whatever disks you'd like, as long as they're ide! If you remove the optical drive, you can connect 4 250gb discs to it and get a 1tb ftp server! how good is that?

This sure looks like a great use to give to that old computer you've got stored in the deepness of your garage.

Clipboard Help+Spell / Copy to Favourites
« on: March 22, 2006, 06:18 PM »
As I couldn't find mouser at the irc channel, i thought i'd better post this idea before i forgot it.
I'm begining to think "how could i ever live without chs??".
But then. i thought it could do even more.

I use CHS to copy a few things in a row, and then pasting them very easily.

But then i thought: thy not have chs working as my notes app?

I already use it that way, when i want to store something, i just copy it, and then move it to "favourites" to prevent it from being deleted.
But this is a bit slow. Why not having a configurable hotkey that would be able to add a clip to favourites? Or maybe one that would copy the last clipboard entry to the favourites?

I don't think this is too hard to do, but could be a real life-saver. What do you think?

Living Room / Free landline calls?
« on: March 22, 2006, 05:09 PM »
A friend of mine just told me about internetcalls. It allegelly allows you to make phone calls in some countries for free!
And i saw my friend calling home, without paying anything.
I can't quite believe it, though. Does anyone know something about this? How is this possible?
